It’s game day and West Ham’s Mikel Antonio will be looking to wreak havoc in the Leeds defence. No wins from Leeds’ first five games is the kind of second season form that sends a recently promoted Premier League side back down to the Championship, and Leeds fans know it. Today’s home game against a stuttering West Ham is an excellent chance to put those fears to rest. Make sure you know how to watch a Leeds vs West Ham live stream wherever you are.
The team news is in and Bielsa goes with his 4-1-4-1 set-up. Dallas and Firpo are at full back. Raphinha and James will look to provide Rodrigo further up the field. For West Ham, Bowen, Fornals and Benrahma complete the attack. Zouma and Ogbonna are the central defensive pairing.

In fairness to Leeds, their only two losses so far have come against the traditional top sides but just one goal scored against Liverpool and Manchester United, and the eight conceded, won’t exactly have filled the dressing room full of confidence.
Fortunately, their manager has been round the block a few times and won’t let something as trivial as a early season cobwebs put him off. Besides, two wins out of two in the League Cup so far will help.
For Davis Moyes and the West Ham faithful, the feeling going into this encounter will doubtless be one of frustration. It was a season like no other in recent memory in the last campaign and the two early wins in 2021/22 will have had hopes soaring once again.
